Hi, need some help if possible!! Got an Acer 3630 laptop that was running windows XP.Was running really slow so I decided to reinstall a clean copy of Windows XP pro that I have on disc. I have formatted hard drive (30gig) and created a NTFS partition for the install.The format stage goes OK and it shows the welcome screen to install XP pro which I select. When it starts installing it keeps showing errors on the install and asks me to press esc to skip certain files (there are loads of them).It then gets to the 100% stage before I get a screen showing error messages telling me an error ocured and the computer will be shut down? When I turn the laptop on without putting the XP pro disc in I get nothing now only a flashing cursor? What have I done!!!! I knew I should have left it but it was running so slow. Any ideas??? Thanks,Tony.
